i was looking at these gaming pcs (two different specs) , there is a hundred pound difference between the two and i was wondering if there is a significant performance difference for gaming between the two. How much of an fps difference would there be.

pc 1: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B004TWYNTO/ref=noref...

pc 2: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00A6S3CAQ/ref=noref...

pc 3: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0051ZBC2O/ref=noref...

All help is greatly appreciated as i dont know much about pcs, i can flex to buy the most expensive one but only if there is a significant difference.

2 is by far the best. AMD FX 4100 is a generation old, same goes for the i5-2400.

You would get most for your money by buying number 2, number 1 might cause a bottleneck and number 3 are simply not in the picture, considering the almost similar price as number 2 while lacking performance.

I agree. The 2nd one is the best. If you really really wanna save money you could overclock the 4100 to about 4.4+ but I think you should get the 2nd one

The second one is actually pretty good, but you can do even better.

This PC is about 20% faster at stock (for gaming) , uses higher quality components and is overclockable which means that if you have time to tinker with it, it can become as much as 60% faster than PC No2

Thank you, i will go for number two, i know i can get even better for around the same price, but i am not going to be able to build my own pc. ( I know its not that hard, but it takes time and things can go wrong, i just prefer to have a pre built)
